    ‘911’ Drama Starring Angela Bassett From Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk To Get Fox Series Order
    A straight procedural would be new for Ryan Murphy. Not sure if I should be expecting a twist or what...

    I thought this was was going to be a Rescue 911 reboot show with Angela Basset being the new host or something. Damn I miss that show!

    This sounds interesting too though, I liked ER.

    ‘9-1-1’: Peter Krause To Star In Ryan Murphy’s Fox Series, McG To Direct, Tim Minear To Showrun
    Weird for Murphy to not direct at least the premiere episode of a show he's involved in.

    Does it feel Ryan Murphy-ish?

    I didn't think so, in fact I had forgotten he was involved, probably because nobody was screaming, lol. Still, it was a decent opener and I'm willing to keep watching it a while. :)

    I thought it was ok. Definitely could be really good and isnt like other shows on tv. The young cop guy was hot.

    I was feeling the first episode. 2nd episode not so much. Abby (Connie) already going after fire-hottie and of course fire-hottie sleeps with his therapist....oy vey.

    One big gripe -- I have never been on a rollercoaster that went upside down that didn't have the heavy shoulder harnesses that clap you down in your seat and buckle to the bottom so you can't fall out.

    Maybe around 40 years ago before a customer fell to his death. Somewhere in the 80s the big parks all retrofitted their cars.

    I've had lap bars for big hills and steep curves, but never for full on upside like that was.

    I think they really need to cut down on the amount of recuse missions they go on and try to focus a bit more on the characters in their work environment.

    Well the show is choppy already. The firefighter backed out on the second rescue and then they never showed that rescue even after building up the window washers almost falling. They were suddenly next in thelocker room and I was a bit surprised by it. We never did see if the rescue came out okay.

    Yeah this seems like it will be the choppiest first season of any RM show that I've watched.

    Renewed
    Yeah, I don't know who the hell thought it was a good idea to follow episode one up with... an episode mainly focusing on the rookie, but... don't do that again. :o

    I have heard of fast triggers to cancel a show but a renewal after the second episode? I guess they are locking in the stars for the reboot.

    Step up from the 2nd episode but they are just playing fast and furious with this show. We have 1 main character whose kid overdoses and then another "main" character put in serious jeopardy. We are only 3 episodes in, I cant even remember these peoples names much less have any attachment to who they are people to REALLY care about them because I dont even know them yet.

    Abby's and Firehotties storyline is forced as hell, she really doesnt have anyone close to her to talk to about her mom? And I hope the 911 aspect of this show didn't live and die with the pilot episode. I want to see more bts action with Abby instead of her just being a voice over.

    I think it's a very good decision for the characters in the show to be friends but this is just weird. It would've been better for everyone to be friends so they can get together at the end of the day and talk about their work with one another.
